GOLD Program Interview

GOLD Program

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2013.

Interview Details – Very friendly environment. Interviewers help keep the conversation fluid and open. Other than asking about interest in J&J, all behavioral questions such as greatest strength, most difficult problem solved, learning from mistakes, working with different types of people, etc.

The interview was an hour and a bit tiring only because the questions are open ended but require a lot of details. Interviewers were both very nice.

Interview Question – Discussing a mistake made on the job.   Answer Question

New Brunswick, NJ

The process took a day - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2011.

Interview Details – Was interviewed one on one by a HR representative and was asked 5 behavioral questions, each covering a different category. There were some stops and starts due to all of my responses needing to be written down in a booklet, but overall it was a smooth process and the interviewer kept it informal and comfortable.

Newark, NJ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2010.

Interview Details – -Phone interview all behavioral questions
-2 day interview process - First night dinner, learn about company and their Credo (very important to utilize later in the interview process). Next day: one behavioral, two case studies - one business and one ethics interview. It is important to remember that people and customers come first at J&J, then business. Their people reflect that service mindset, which makes it a great company.

GOLD Program Interview

GOLD Program
Davis, CA

The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2008.

Interview Details – I had an on-campus interview initially - about an hour long, all behavioral questions. After this, I was invited to fly to NJ for a weekend with all the other candidates from from around the country. Once there, we had one day of networking and learning about the company "credo." Then, day two consisted of 3 1:1 interviews - 2 case studies, 1 behavioral. They were challenging but the interviewers would help you along a little with the case studies. It was a pretty laid back atmosphere, all things considered. I ended up not getting an offer, mostly because I had no engineering or operations background, they said. I was entered into their system though, and they ended up calling me a few months later with a job offer for a different position.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2011.

Interview Details – Applied through college website and got an email for an interview. Interview was 1:1 for about an hour. Unfortunately, the interviewer began by stating the fact he was tired and throughout the interview showed general disinterest and frequently got off-track. Questions were very basic and followed the STAR method. The week after I received a call stating, without surprise, that I had not advanced to the next round.
